Grilled Pineapple Ricotta Cream

We were watching the cooking show, when Giada De Laurentiis came on. Suddenly she puts together a quick and easy dessert recipe called Ricotta Cappuccino, it looked great. We had ricotta, cappuccino cream requires instant espresso, which we do not have. A quick look in the refrigerator and I saw the answer; last night’s grilled pineapple.

If you have haven’t had grilled fresh pineapple slices you need to give it a try, grill them until they are heated through are slightly browned, then enjoy that warm intense flavor. Chill the grilled pineapple before making grilled pineapple cream.

We had a nice fresh nectarine available, which I sliced and pitted. Wanting to release the flavor of the nectarine I ran it quickly through the microwave for 1 minute just before serving.

In the photo above you can see the plated ricotta cream, which was chilled for an hour,  with the warm nectarines and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts. This is a heavenly as a dessert, so good that we ate the remaining servings for breakfast the next day.
